Non-Stop

Now Playing Synopsis: Liam Neeson reunites with Unknown director Jaume Collet-Serra) for this airborne thriller about an Air Marshal racing to stop the villain who has framed him as a hijacker during a non-stop flight from New York to London. From the moment we first meet Air Marshal Bill Marks (Neeson), it's apparent his nerves are frayed. After furtively knocking back a stiff drink in the airport parking lot, he enters the crowded terminal to board a plane bound for London. Carefully observing his fellow travelers along the way, Marks eventually ends up seated next to nervous flyer Jen (Julianne Moore), who begins to breathe easier once she's seated near a window. Later, as the plane hits cruising altitude, Marks receives a mysterious text message stating that a passenger on the flight will be killed every 20 minutes unless $150 million is deposited into a secure bank account. But the harder Marks works to identify a suspect, the deeper he implicates himself in what becomes a deadly hostage crisis unfolding at 30,000 feet over the Atlantic Ocean. When it's revealed that the account for the ransom money is in Marks' name, the FAA revokes his marshal status and the media paints him as a hijacker. As the frightened passengers begin to turn on Marks, he suspects the true culprit may not even be on the plane. And with the help of Jen and perceptive airline hostess Nancy (Michelle Dockery), he attempts to clear his name and protect the passengers by any means possible. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Liam Neeson, Julianne Moore, Nate Parker Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review

Film review: 'Taken 2' should be taken away

...embarrassed to hear distinguished actor Liam Neeson forced to utter the phrase "Don't...I wonder if it's the same for Liam Neeson? Either that, or he was contractually...Taken 3." I don't begrudge Liam Neeson a huge payday - he's earned it...

Third Person

Now Playing Synopsis: Oscar-winner Paul Haggis (Crash) writes and directs this romantic drama that alternates between three tales of intrigue unfolding simultaneously in New York, Paris, and Rome. Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael (Liam Neeson) is still reeling from the recent separation from his wife Elaine (Kim Basinger) when he retreats to a Paris hotel room to finish his latest novel. As Michael searches for inspiration, his fiery affair with smoldering journalist and aspiring writer Anna (Olivia Wilde) awakens an intense passion deep within him. Meanwhile, in Rome, unscrupulous American businessman Scott (Adrien Brody) ducks into a place called the Café Americano searching for a taste of home. There he encounters captivating Roma beauty Monika (Moran Atias), who claims to have just lost the ransom she intended to pay her daughter's kidnappers. Smitten and sympathetic, Scott agrees to join her in traveling to a dangerous region of southern Italy, only to realize along the way that he may have fallen victim to an intricate con. As Scott ventures toward an uncertain fate in an unfamiliar country, former soap-opera starlet Julia (Mila Kunis) fights her prolific, ex-husband artist Rick (James Franco) for custody of their six-year-old son in New York City. It seems like a losing battle until Julia's lawyer Theresa (Maria Bello) convinces the court to give her desperate client one last chance to prove she's a fit mother. Now as Julia finds herself on the other side of the glamorous life she once enjoyed, her husband's new girlfriend Sam (Loan Chabanol) watches the situation play out with a heavy heart. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Mila Kunis, Olivia Wilde, Adrien Brody, James Franco Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
